Devotees of makeup, skin care and spa services have reason to celebrate because another Bluemercury location just opened in New Jersey. The brand new Morristown store (located on the same block as NJ Monthly…oh, man, this could be a problem) joins other NJ locations in Denville, Summit, Westfield, Montclair, Bridgewater, Ridgewood and Paramus.
Founded in 1999 by beauty industry visionaries Barry and Marla Malcolm Beck, Bluemercury was an overnight sensation because it offered high-quality, innovative cosmetics that typically could be purchased only at fine drugstores and department stores. Today, clients keep coming back for expert advice, friendly service and free two-day shipping (gratis overnight shipping when you spend $150+).
Another big draw is makeup and skin care samples. In fact, shoppers can request up to three complimentary samples with every purchase. (Barry and Marla say they would rather have clients leave the store with handfuls of samples so they can find the right products, rather than buy anything that’s less than 100% right.)
Besides makeup and skin care, Bluemercury carries a full line of haircare and fragrance products, as well as gifts for women and men. New Jersey Bluemercury stores also offer spa services like facials, eye-zone treatments, glycolic peels, microdermabrasion, vitamin C treatments, brow styling, face and body waxing, makeup application, massage, scrubs, wraps, body bronzing, manicures and pedicures. Super busy over the holidays? Snag a 30-minute Fast Blast—a cleansing, glycolic peel and vitamin oxygen blast for 85 bucks. And, of course, gift cards are always available for last-minute holiday shopping.
